Taking this time to gloat mainly because I am the ultimate procrastinator I also consider myself a more than awesome gift giver. Every other fashion or lifestyle blog seems to be doing gift guides that are either filled with too expensive gifts or crappy gifts.
Being the magnificent gift giver I am here’s a gift to my readers in gift giving and receiving etiquette Anorexic Escapades style.
Spit it out: If you get a lousy gift don’t be afraid to say so. Keeping a gift you don’t want will resulting in you getting lousier gifts next year. It’s perfectly fine to tell the giver that this isn’t your taste it will only help them be better shoppers. Unless the receiver is a child then they just have to deal with it.
Limit yourself: Don’t over spend on gifts it’s totally okay to get someone a less expensive gift. I mean you will have money left to buy yourself a better gift after the lousy one you just received. As well as it don’t make you look cool buying an expensive gift it’s kind of douchey because it makes the receiver feel like they have to spend money they would rather not just to counter your gift.
Read the label: If they have a Christmas list don’t go all off script and try to be “innovative” by buying something you’ll think they will like. Nine times out ten they won’t hence the Christmas list- so stick to it.
calories coins: This is for all of you who are in new relationship that just so happens to overlap the holidays. Here’s the formula; time + fancy / sex= gift amount. In laments terms 100 dollars for every four months. (You could just break up till after Valentine’s Day.)
Alternatives: There is nothing wrong with just sending out a nice chic Christmas card instead of spending money you don’t have. People just want to be thought of during this time of the year.
Yes, some may not totally agree with how I handle Christmas gifting but it is truly about seeing the look on someone you love face Christmas morning after standing in long lines next to humongous, hideously dressed people with their heinous children. I do believe it is better to give than receive. If you don’t receive anything on Christmas make sure you are giving to those who matter, just think of all the things they have done for you throughout the year.
Have a Merry fat free Christmas.
Don’t be a human garbage disposal walk away from the dessert table.
I have to wrap these gifts and address these Christmas cards.
Am I the only one who freaking love these BestBuy commercial where these moms are totally disrespecting fat Santa?
